What do you currently have on view?
Besides our permanent light installation, we have works by Alissa Attman and Mark S. Sanders on the gallery wall. Our art selection is curated by Katsea Gallery, and rotates seasonally. We also have permanent wallpaper created by local artist Allison Crowley, and have some permanent pieces for behind the bar currently in design by Sarah Pilkinton.
How do you decide what works are on view/do you accept submissions?
All artists should contact Katsea gallery for inquiries about exhibiting. We do have some special shows scheduled through the distillery coming as well.
Who are some of your favorite artists or creatives in Baltimore?
I’ll start with giving it up to the Godfather of trash and good bad taste, John Waters. Amy Sherald is already a legend. TT the Artist not only absolutely inspires with her own work but does such a great job bringing attention to Baltimore creatives; bonus points.
I have a great affection for Landis Expandis’ whole creative energy, from his music projects, to his visual art, to his fashion sense. I suppose I could go on but honestly I’m always admiring a new artist around town. There’s so much great creative energy in the city.
What is your favorite cocktail either on the menu, or one that you make at home?
I’m a creature of habit and I can’t stop drinking our Fernet Frappe in the Cocktail Gallery. It’s a mix of Epoch Rye based Crème de Menthe, Fernet, and Apricot Creme. It sounds heavy but it’s light. It sounds complicated but it’s so accessible. I love it.
How can BmoreArt’s audience support you and Baltimore Spirits Co.?
